Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Challenging Roar

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Neotaeo of Challenging Roar!

Neo has been playing WoW since just before the start of The Burning Crusade and had loved every minute of his adventures in Azeroth. He’s been tanking as a druid since Karazhan, but has experience playing all four of the tanking classes. While Neo enjoys exploring other classes, he can’t quite seem to avoid the call of the tank and always finds himself at the mean end of the creatures in Azeroth.

Neo covers his thoughts and perspectives on tanking, along with his tips for gearing, gemming, enchanting and specing for a feral tank. In addition, Neo likes to offer feedback on new things happening both in game and in the community. Neo has done a series on things that will make you a better tank. And in a topic near and dear to my heart, Neo explores how tanks are responsible for healing too! If you are aren’t looking to tank, don’t worry! Neo has you covered! You might find his thoughts on the smart authenticator or his history of druid lore more your pace!

Neo hopes to continue to cover tanking trends as well as hot topics as he moves forward.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to read more!  Welcome to the blogosphere, Neo!

Shared Topic: The Consequences of Death in an MMO

I am safely home from vacation and get to breathe a little bit while waiting for the moving van to come pick up my stuff. And because I’m home, we get an almost-on-time compilation of one week’s Shared Topic. Let us all celebrate by participating in next week’s Topic!

This week’s Topic was contributed by Sharden of the blog 15 Minutes of WoW and opened discussion on the delicate endeavor that is perfecting an MMO death system:

How do you think dying in an MMO should affect the characters? In WoW we have a relatively insignificant repair cost from durability for a PVE death and no consequence for dying to another player. Do you think this is enough, too much, or needing improvement? Tie-ins to related MMO’s or multiplayer games and what sort of repricussion there is for failure there can be a good way to explain your thoughts.

Participating were:

Sharden from 15 Minutes of WoW

Elkagorasa from Elkagorasa the Casual

Violet Scribe from The Violet Scribe

Amerence from Amerence Love WoW

Oathblade from Info about the World of Warcraft from the Altaholic

Blayze from Tank Out of Water

Martha from

And this week we speculate about Blizzcon and what Blizzcon shall bring! What do you think will be announced at Blizzcon? Blog about it and link us your post in the thread at Blog Azeroth!

Be sure to start planning for these upcoming topics as well:
RP and Bliz’s Multimedia push
Tell us, oh fortunteller, about patch 4.3 …

Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Pyromania

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join my in welcoming Mebhy of Pyromania!

Mebhy start playing WoW just before the release of The Burning Crusade and was a “completely terrible warrior tank”. Deciding that tanking wasn’t for him, he took up the mantle of the mage and hasn’t looked back since! He raided all through wrath, and has continued his raiding in Cataclysm as an officer and class leader in his 25 man progression guild. Mebhy stared blogging as an outlet for his thoughts and to share them with the WoW community.

He hopes to cover a large range of topics with his blog, but has a primary focus on the challenges that one faces taking on a leadership role in a guild and, of course, mages! He intends to do a series documenting the creation of the new caster legenday, Dragonwrath, complete with FRAPS’d footage of the quest chain!

Mebhy has addressed some great topics already, including the importance of communication between your officers and your guild and the struggles that raid teams face when they start hitting walls (a topic near and dear to my heart!). He has also explored the effect that Rage Quitting has on not only the player, but the guild as a whole as well as musing about when it might be best, or if you should, quit your raid team.

Mebhy is off to a great start!  I can’t wait to follow his experiences into guild leadership and raiding.  Welcome to the Blogoshphere, Mebhy!
